It’s all about mittens!

February 3, 2010

I have knit a lot of mittens lately. First, I made a pair of  Delicato Mitts by Anne Hanson for David’s brother’s wife for Christmas. I made them with yarn from one of their alpacas, Ode to Joy, that I handdyed.

Then I made a pair of  Super Mittens from Weekend Knitting by Melanie Falick for a coworker’s mother:

I have made two more pairs for coworkers:

I am using yarn from my stash for these: Brown Sheep and Malabrigo.

And now I am making a pair of Spiraluscious Mitts by Anne Hanson for a niece in Texas.

I think I like knitting mittens more than socks. I don’t know, socks just take me too long and I am not sure they are worth the effort. I probably would not give them to any one and inevitable my socks get felted in the wash or end up with a hole. I love sock yarn, though. So I am on the lookout for patterns to use up single skeins of sock yarn.

Cowls are good. Fingerless mitts (could probably get two pair from one skein). Small scarves. Baby Kimonos. There as so much more you can knit with sock yarn.
